I tried to like this...
20 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For a low budget film, this looks amazingly good. There is a script, some good gore effects, and a lot of evident hard work by the cast and crew. The acting is not terrible overall, and this film pays honorable tribute to the low budget zombie flick tradition.

Problem comes from the cast and premise. If you must make a sort core zombie flick with frequent nudity, I would argue that having attractive actors in the naked roles is pretty much a requirement. It also would be a good idea to have your strongest actors take the most important roles. They may even teach that last point in real film schools...

Instead, we get "Dexy" who not to belabor the point is not in the least attractive, resembling a younger Kathy Bates. If she was as good an actress as Ms Bates, all well and good, but she is really not talented. So to cast her in a key (arguably pivotal) role as the center of the action is unwise as she cannot bear the load of talent needed to transcend her blah appearance. There is too much residual disbelief involved for the audience to imagine a circle of desire and treachery with this uncharismatic and unappealing character as the center of it.

The other liability is Kristin Hansen, who plays Sassy. She is such a poor actress that another main liability, the silly Siamese twin claymation face "Dotty", becomes even more tedious. The whole plot involving the soldier falling for Sassy is jaw-droppingly perverse, reminding me of that moment in "Night of the Zombies" when the commando puts on the tutu and pirouettes around the room into the hands of a mob of zombies. The difference is that the latter moment made me laugh because it was enjoyably dumb, while the current instance just made me roll my eyes in incredulity due to the crappy acting job of Ms Hansen.

Anyway, these two mediocre actresses in key roles plus the Dotty subplot deflate the movie quite a bit. From the aspiring director in me, I wonder why the director didn't take the two cuter actresses appearing in bit roles and put them in the Dexy and Sassy role. The zombie girl is far more attractive, and the girl Matool rescues from the car is also cuter and can act substantially better than either Dexy or Hansen. So you want a cute woman for naked scenes, you have one, you want a better actress, check have one of those too. The casting of this film therefore makes even less sense objectively...

Anyway, if you don't expect even adequate acting from horror movies, and don't mind seeing people who look like they are from the local Applebee's naked, you may be able to enjoy this movie more fully. Even if you are more quality minded, this is a decent viewing for zombie movie completists, as there are a few interesting ideas here and the director seems to have a lot of talent in every element of film production except casting.
